Preserving Parks Today
We are a non-profit charitable organization that focuses on the completion and the full appreciation of our National Parks by identifying key land acquisition and preservation projects and connecting kids to these unique and iconic places. NPT supports the development of public and private partnerships to acquire lands that protect our national parks. Since 1983, NPT has completed 70 land acquisition, restoration, and mitigation projects to protect more than 30,000 acres in 31 states, one U.S. Territory, and Washington, DC. Fifty-five of these National Park Service projects have benefited 44 National Park Service units. Although our current work focuses solely on our national parks, we also have completed three U.S. Forest Service projects, three National Wildlife Refuge projects and nine state and local park projects.
